It bothers me that no one has the patience to deal with someone who is just sad.

I’m tired… I’m so tired. I thought I just needed a night’s sleep, but it’s more than that.
— Inside Llewyn Davis (2013)
It takes too much imagination to see the sorrows of people we take for happy. Their real battles take place, like those of the stars, in some realm of light imperceptible to the human eye. It is a feat of the mind to guess another’s heart.
— Andrew Sean Greer, Confessions Of Max Tivoli (via splitterherzen)
A man who wants to die feels angry and full of life and desperate and bored and exhausted, all at the same time; he wants to fight everyone, and he wants to curl up in a ball and hide in a cupboard somewhere. He wants to say sorry to everyone, and he wants them to know just how badly they’ve all let him down.
